Mitt Romney to endorse John McCain today

While I do not understand the timing I have just learned that Mitt Romney will endorse Senator John McCain later today and request that his 280 delegates support that recommendation.

So much for all the “free” media coverage that Senator McCain has enjoyed these past 10 days. As he locks up the Republican primary my sense is that the network and cable media will not be riding the McCain bus and sending reports back from every local diner or restaurant he visits. At this point he is not the main news. The party’s over, for now.

So Obama and Hillary will be seen virtually every night between now and the final primary in June where they will blast away at our side and we sit on the sidelines waiting for November. And stealing a closing line from Walter Cronkite “and that’s the way it is.”
